Newton Presbytery

As part of the national Presbyterian Church (USA), Yellow Frame is also part of a regional governing body called Newton Presbytery.

Newton Presbytery is the regional expression of the Presbyterian Church (USA) in Northwest New Jersey including the counties of Morris, Sussex, Warren and Hunterdon. The Presbytery’s membership includes members of 59 PCUSA congregations and their pastors, as well as those who serve in validated ministries and those who have retired from active service.

The Presbytery supports and encourages the ministries and mission of all individual congregations as well as those shared collaboratively and cooperatively by clusters of congregations. Mission emphases include local endeavors in ministries of feeding and sheltering the poor and homeless, responding to disaster, interfaith relationships, and peacemaking as well as international mission with congregations and presbyteries in Nairobi and the Dominican Republic. Programmatic support might include topics like faith formation, youth ministry, spiritual development and stewardship.

The business of the Presbytery is conducted at Presbytery meetings in January, March, May, September and November when equal numbers of Teaching and Ruling Elders gather for worship, business, and community activities.

Johnsonburg Camp and Conference Center and Blair Academy are located in the bounds of the Presbytery.
